Situated in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, Holland Park is one of the most exclusive and desirable residential areas in west central London bordering Notting Hill and Kensington. It is regarded as an affluent and fashionable area and is renowned for its leafy tree lined streets and gracious Italianate villas, favoured by ambassadors, diplomats and famous residents.
Historically the district was rural until the 19th century, most of which was formerly the grounds of a Jacobean Mansion called Holland House. In the later decades of that century the owners of the house sold off the more outlying parts of its grounds for residential development and the district which evolved took its name from the house.
now offers a wide range of sought-after housing, from its attractive large Victorian townhouses, elegant Georgian terraced houses, imposing mansion buildings set in landscaped grounds and period conversions to modern town houses and pretty mews cottages.
boasts a choice of high-end boutique shops, delis, bars and restaurants including Lidgates a renowned local butcher and is surrounded by the fashionable Notting Hill with its stylish restaurants, Portobello Market with its myriad of stalls and coffee bars, chic High Street Kensington, with Kensington Palace a short distance away and the indulgent shopping complex, Westfield London.
itself is believed to be one of the most peaceful and romantic parks in London and is still home to an impressive amount of wildlife despite its central location. The Park itself covers about 54 acres of beautiful green space and semi-wild woodland, and contains a famous Orangery, a cricket pitch, tennis courts, a Japanese garden, one of London’s best equipped children’s playgrounds and an impressive open air theatre, which is the home of the Holland Park Opera.
